Good idea. The only problem is that I have no access to a PowerPC
machine (installing a cross-compiler is an option, but last time I tried
to build one in cygwin I had no success). I think this could be done
better someone that knows how to write asm (and that's not my case;-)).
If there are no volunteers, I'll try to do it myself.
